These dish fragments show just a few of those that were recovered during excavations in 2014 of the Adair cabin site, home of Reverend Samuel and Florella Brown Adair and their family, in Osawatomie, Kansas. Osawatomie and the Adairs was much involved with the abolitionist movement during the "Bleeding Kansas" years. A wide variety of patterns were recovered from the site including hand painted, molded, shell-edged and flow blue. Additionally, sherds were recovered that were decorated by transfer printing, called transferware, and by sponging with color, called spongeware.
